The director of the Pullman Civic Theatre’s production of “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde,” opening this week, says the script is “the most true to the original novella by (Robert Louis) Stevenson that I have read.”
The play includes not one but four Hydes, director and producer Mike Long said in a news release.
“After all, what person hasn’t had more than one dark desire,” Long said.
The show will be presented at the Gladish Community & Cultural Center’s Domey Auditorium in Pullman, allowing larger audiences than at the theater’s usual Nye Street stage while maintaining social distancing.
The production, scored by Moscow composer Daniel Joseph White, is “really a show that demonstrates what happens when a community comes together, to give something special to the Palouse community as a whole.”
It is also a safe way to get back into the world and start to celebrate the fall and Halloween season, Long said.Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Saturday (Oct. 1-2), next Thursday, Oct. 8-9, and at 2 p.m. Sunday and Oct. 10. Tickets are available at pullmancivictheatre.org.
